The state capital of Hawaii on Oahu Island is a breathtaking place to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Before you know it, you’ll have a colorful lei around your neck and a cocktail in your hand, while you listen to the sound of ukuleles and admire the surfers braving the chill of the Pacific Ocean. Everything you’ve heard about Hawaii is true, so you may as well pack that floral shirt! Honolulu is the only U.S. city to have a royal palace and it proudly celebrates its unique Polynesian cultural heritage.
Most visitors head straight to popular Waikiki Beach. Watch the skilled surfers, jump in the blue waters or enjoy fine dining. Visit nearby Kapiolani Park, with its Honolulu Zoo, or climb the extinct Diamond Head volcano. For great snorkeling, head to Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, Kailua Beach Park, or Halona Beach, better known as Eternity Beach. For some stunning scenery away from the coast, visit the spectacular Manoa Falls.
Most Hawaiian residents live in the economic hub of Honolulu. Hawaii’s Asian influence is reflected in its food, but you can also try traditional island dishes such as “laulau” (pork wrapped in taro leaves) and “poke” (a raw fish salad). The compact downtown area offers art, temples, nightlife and designer shops. Visit Iolani Palace to learn about Hawaii’s royal past.
Sights in Pearl Harbor, such as the Battleship Missouri Memorial, remind visitors of one of the most famous attacks of World War II. The USS Arizona Memorial straddles the remains of the sunken American war ship, and the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum displays the vessel used in the counterattacks.
The capital of the Hawaiian island group has some of the worst traffic jams in the U.S., so it’s best to get around using the inexpensive buses and trolleys.
Hawaii is America’s southernmost state, and is made up entirely of islands. Some of the state’s most historic sites and major cultural attractions are in Honolulu. Enjoy this city’s distinct culture, abundance of natural beauty and year-round warm climate, and treat yourself to a tropical island stay.
The state capital of Hawaii offers an abundance of great places to stay. Currently, you'll find 108 Honolulu hotel options listed on Expedia's hotels guide.
Enjoy some down time at the Halekulani or the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower, a couple of the more high-rating hotels on the island. Alternatively, if you're after a bargain, the Marina Tower Waikiki and the Aston Waikiki Beachside Hotel are two of the more popular budget-friendly options.

The room was excellent (Ocean Front) and the Rainbow towers is in a excellent spot close to the beach. We were there at the start jof the Covid-19 virus so things started to shut down or there was take out only, but every associated with the hotel was pleasant and very friendly. The prices I thought ...
Good location for shopping and dinning. I requested to repair a safe in my room but they had never showed up until check out.
I liked the spacious room and the couch in the room with the balcony and the king bed.
This is a great hotel! The front desk person was so very nice. Housekeeping is excellent! Great views of the beach and ocean. Will definitely stay here again.
The property was very well laid out. It was easy to find the pools as well as the path leading to the beach from the pool.
Everything was exceptional during our stay however due to Covid19 there really was nothing open but not the Hotels fault! Exceptional stay super accommodating and nice staff
